Sun in Gemini:
Chapter 2: The Moon
Chapter 3: Mercury
Mercury in Cancer:
You are emotional in your thinking, but that is a good quality to have if you are in the position of protecting others in a motherly way, or protecting the environment as a whole. You are very sensitive to emotional appeals from others, especially when their need is for food or nurturing; you know exactly what they need and when. Much of your activity is directed towards caring for others, especially the young, and your words have a healing effect on them.
You would understand the instinctive caring which motivates the mother birds to make trip after trip to bring back food for the little, open mouths in the nest. If humans could get back in touch with this innate desire to protect, the world would be a much more caring place.
Mercury in the 5th House

You have the ability to think creatively and solve problems. You could speak convincingly about the environment as a leader whom others would be willing to follow.
Mercury Trine Neptune:
You have a real talent for visualization. For example, you would be good at nature photography or painting, because you would be able to see ahead of time in your mind's eye how it will look. You could use your talent to communicate to others how to appreciate nature, and perhaps to get them to donate the cause of protecting fish or other small creatures from pollution.
Mercury Sextile Pluto:
You have a brilliant mind and are a good debater of environmental issues, because you say what needs to be said and you research your facts well. You could reach the masses with your extensive knowledge of natural species. You like probing into the causes of things, and you could feel very fulfilled by doing research into how the altering of watercourses causes flooding, and how pollution upstream can affect the creatures living downstream.
Chapter 4: Venus
Venus in Taurus:
You are loyal and enduring in relationships, and you seek to establish a permanent home. You feel a kinship with nature, and you like to be surrounded by the beauty of forests, flowers, and scenery. You are very likely to have an attractive garden, beautifully landscaped, in front of a well-maintained large older home with classical architecture.
Great blue herons build nests at the top of trees, and they come back and use the same nest each year for many years. The nests are constructed of sticks and are about three feet wide, and the herons keep them in good repair rather then have to build a new nest.

You would also be good at running an organic foods delivery business, and you would struggle with it until it paid off. You might undertake to build things outdoors, such as log cabin.

Chapter 5: Mars
Mars in Leo:
You are very self- confident, and you assume that your natural position is that of the leader. In nature, the queen of the ant colony does not have to attend to anything other than egg-laying, and the worker ants feed her.
You are able to use the fiery power of the sun to get others to submit to your authority. There are small ants called "fire ants", which bite their prey, and if the bites are exposed to sunlight, the power of their sting becomes even more potent. Similarly, the effect of poisonous plants such as wild parsnip and poison ivy are intensified in their effect on humans by exposure to sunlight, causing what is called "phytophotodermatitis".

You derive karmic benefit from the fact that you are universally tolerant. Your efforts uplift humanity on a very large scale, because you show others by your own example how to break away from old limitations and false beliefs and advance positively into the future.
Those creatures in nature which adapt their ways to the presence of humans are most likely to survive. Those which can live in cities and get fed by humans or live on what humans discard are even growing in numbers. Some examples are crows, domestic pigeons, coyotes, gulls, and squirrels.
Jupiter in the 12th House
You might like to run a secluded nature retreat for yoga, nature art, and meditation. You would be good at promoting nature photography. You might like outdoor activities in the water, such as swimming, kayaking and canoeing. You would be a good fund-raiser for lake and wetland conservation, and you could publish articles about this. You could teach meditations on nature and what its creatures can teach man.

You would enjoy getting outdoors in the quiet wilderness or going on long canoe trips. You could publish articles and photographs of your adventures. You would be good at getting out there and actually creating a better habitat for the fish. You could teach others about marine biology out in the field. You could benefit by practicing yoga, and if you kept at it, you could become a very inspired yoga teacher, who could awaken others to their sensitivity towards nature and their oneness with it.
Chapter 7: Saturn
Saturn in Capricorn:
You were raised in an atmosphere of conditional acceptance, in that, if you did what you were told, you were put in charge of more responsibilities as recognition, and if you disobeyed authority, you were punished. You learned both that success has to be earned and that it is worth striving for. You can function very well in serious situation, in which each person has his or her own duties, and you take pride in doing a good job.
Those species in nature which must survive in the winter or in the Arctic or in any other situations of scarcity must learn to conserve their energy, as a matter of survival. If they use their resources well, they survive, and if they make mistakes, they have to pay the price. Some have to store food for the winter, such as beavers, squirrels, and chipmunks.
Saturn in the 12th House
You could become a serious nature photographer. You would be willing to wait for along time to get just the right picture. You would be concerned about the conservation of lakes and wetlands and fish. You would be a good manager of a quiet nature retreat, where people could meditate on their oneness with nature and its creatures.
Chapter 8: Uranus
Uranus in Leo:
You tend to go along with a group, but at the same time, to maintain a very strong sense of self. You are very creative, romantic and original, as is your generation. Your efforts in art, theater, and entertainment are likely to be innovative and inspired by a group consciousness.
If you have gone for nature walks in the spring, you may have noticed that, when the weather suddenly gets hot, various species are mating, and that pairs of different kinds of birds choose the same small area of the forest to mate at the same time, in close proximity to one another.
Uranus in the 7th House
You could work on new partnerships or agreements to protect the environment. You might like to participate in a community flower garden, which would look very beautiful and attract butterflies for all to enjoy. You have an intuitive sense of harmony.

You were born at a time when there was a rebirth in interest in maintaining a natural, healthy lifestyle. Health food stores appeared and grew; exercise and yoga classes became popular, and holistic therapies emerged. There was a strong rejection of the corporate influence on the quality of the air, the use of chemicals in food, over-packaging, and pollution of the land and waters. There was a rebellion against oppressive employment practices and the introduction of humanistic and cooperative work environments.
